Bruce Wayne is back — and he’s a man on a mission.
Grant Morrison spoke with the LA Times about his upcoming series, Batman Inc., as well as his personal philosophies on Bruce Wayne’s personality — “A man who is that advanced in meditation and martial arts and yoga is not going to be a one-note vigilante crime fighter,” he told Geoff Boucher — as well as the wide breadth of stories previously told with the character.
The two news bits of note in this story are the fact that Bruce will be bringing back the yellow oval symbol to his uniform, last seen around the No Man’s Land saga; and the fact that Morrison’s first 12 issues will be “team-ups with Batman and different characters as he traveling the world and kind of training people.”
One character confirmed for the series will be El Gaucho, who agrees with Batman’s ideals if not his methods, as well as Knight and Squire.
“At the end we found out what that’s all about; it’s not just habit or routine,” Morrison said. “He actually has a big agenda. That leads into where I’m taking this. At the end of the ‘first season’ I want to wind up with a really enormous Batman story. Everything is building up to that kind of climatic arc.”
